Pow Wow Hawaii 2014 Recap Part 1

Street art festival Pow Wow Hawaii officially ended on February 15, and all there's left to do now is tend to our sunburns and go home. Throughout last week, we wandered through Honolulu's Kaka'ako neighborhood and observed a group of world class artists creating murals that added color to the city's mundane landscape. Many of the walls at Pow Wow were collaborative efforts: Some artists who teamed up, like DabsMyla and Misery, were longtime friends and colleagues, while others, like Meggs and Bask, had never worked together and faced the challenge of joining their creative processes (and sharing a lift!). Here you will find a round up of photos of some of the highlights from the week of painting. Of course, there were too many great murals to choose from, so stay tuned for Part 2 of the recap tomorrow!
